Who are the Oregonians donating to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump?

Clinton’s top donors in Oregon are often business people, attorneys and government officials, while those giving most to Trump tend to be retired or self employed and many live in rural areas, records from the Federal Election Commission show.

Records also show that many Democratic state lawmakers or members of their staffs have donated to Clinton, but no Republican state lawmakers have given money to Trump.

Instead, conservative figures are contributing to the Republican National Committee, including Rep. Greg Baretto, R-La Grande; Marion County Circuit Court judge and former Oregon GOP chair Vance Day; and current Oregon GOP head Marjorie Hughes.
